It’s a Bat Sign

Got an autographed copy of “Arthur Schwartz’s New York City Food” at A Cook’s Companion on Atlantic Avenue. I haven’t read the entire book, but it seems to be pretty complete – he even has my godmother’s spaghetti and meatballs recipe on page 170.

Batman Begins is really a superior movie to all of the others. There was one continuity error (or difference) about who exactly is the killer of Bruce Wayne’s parents versus the previous movies or the comics, but this explaination is much, much deeper. Definately some inspired casting choices. Recommended.

On the other hand, saw the trailer for the Dukes of Hazard movie — besides the question of why?what about the casting: Jessica Simpson as Daisy Duke, Burt Reynolds as Boss Hogg, or Willie Nelson as Uncle Jessie? Obviously, their careers are headed for a dead end, good buddy.

One thought on “It’s a Bat Sign”

  1. I’ve got my Batman post up!

    Oh, and speaking of trailers – yeah, that “Dukes of Hazard” trailer was on the appalling side for me. I barely remember the old escapades of the cousins, but weren’t they like the Robin Hoods of Hazard county, not just the local thrill seeking yokels? Tom Wopat and Luke Schneider might as well be shaking their heads. Heck, the idea of Burt Reynolds as Boss Hogg just doesn’t make sense (he’s Burt Reynolds, not a guy who’d look appropriately Hogg-ish). Why did they make the movie is a sad question indeed.

    Oh, and I’m amazed by the trailer for “Serenity,” the big-screen movie of the FOX-cancelled tv show “Firefly” by Joss Whedon (the man who made Buffy and Angel). The trailer captured the idea of the show (which I couldn’t watch since FOX had in bad timeslots and early cancellation, which even discouraged anyone more), and made it look really fun. Well, fun to me, anyway.
